Im hungry and I need a snack
Go quietly dressed in black
Ill let you borrow my headlamp
Ride into the night huddle in cars or on our bikes
With donuts on our minds
And bagels
Grab friends along the way
Got our lights and gloves and crates
Our hunger set to sate
Food on the table
The food stamps have run dry
Tired of waiting in line
Eating is a right
Ready and able
Found a dumpster hid
Enchanting glow from beneath the lid
Our mouths they watered
The lock it shattered
One at a time we climbed into the grime
Veggies vinyls booze and books
All the best refuse wherever we looked
We gave and we took
So much loveliness
This is dirty bliss
How can I resist
Dancing on the piles
Trash for miles and miles
Redeeming what you deem vile
Throw it all away
Funny how your waste saves and fills up all our plates
Cops roll up in cruisers
To take our booty of litter
But we wont surrender the scraps we have rendered
this joyful host a revolution’s compost
Seeking refuge we joined hands and pulled each other in
No sooner had we gathered there the walls started caving in
Falling through a deep abyss, at first we were afraid
But in the dark we closed our eyes and let our hands find a way
Sliding through filthy tunnels out bodies ricochet
Running short of breath
I don’t think we can escape
But look behold there is a light
That shines inside this man made cave
The sun shines so bright
You squint your eyes to see before your eyes their lies
Treasure endlessly hypnotize inside the warmth of the air and sea
Those big clouds and our troubles have burned away
And all we do now is eat and sleep and play
And wonder just how we lived any other way
The ground seeps as flies buzz around your face
Sallow cheeks turn grey
Nothing left to eat my insides ache supplies decayed
The soil reeks and there is no shade
Cannot salvage the waste
The air burns and the sky rains ash
Eyes sting teeth gnash
It wasn’t until a our guts were hollow
That our minds could be filled with the sound
Of our own mothers voice and this is what she had to say
You have made your own choice
Yes you have made a grave mistake
You must give as much as you take
Through the soil your fingers will rake
In order to reap you most sow
In order to live you most grow
Now go share what you know
This admonishment fell us to our knees
We wept until the soil was wet
And after we had dried our eyes
We fed the earth with our own sweat
Finally those clouds came back
Waste not want not
